I am obsessed with comfort food and it is pretty obvious with my figure! Lol thankfully I am not overweight but lord knows I have curves! With that said, I recently asked what everyone’s favorite comfort food was and I had an overwhelming response! Some here on WordPress but most were personal messages or comments on FaceBook! I am pleased to announce that Homemade Macaroni & Cheese won in a landslide!
Ok my majestical little foodies… here is how I make mine!
It can go either way just so you know, you can bake it in the oven or in your slowcooker/crock pot!
1 1/2 Box uncooked Elbows
4 Tbsp Butter
10 Oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese; Freshly Grated
1/2 Onion; coarsely Chopped
3 Eggs Slightly Beaten
4 Oz (1/2 Cup) Sour Cream
1 10Oz Can Campbells Cheddar Cheese Soup
1/2 Tsp Dry Mustard
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Cup Milk
2 Tbsp Butter
1/2 Cup Dried Unseasoned Bread Crumbs
1/4 Tsp Dried Parsley
1/4 Tsp Dried Oregano
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp Cracked Black Pepper
Alright my friends, first we need to melt the butter in a large sauce pan.
Next we will stir in our grates cheddar cheese and continue stirring until it is all melted.
It’s still lumpy wino!!!!!
Phew now its smooth! (it only took a few minutes, I am just impatient)
So transfer the cheese mixture into a crock pot or slow cooker *Unless you are baking then transfer into a large bowl.
Cook pasta according to directions.
Sautee chopped onion in the same sauce pan you were just using for the cheese mixture and saute for 2 minutes.
Stir into cheese mixture in crock pot/slow cooker/casserole dish.
Add eggs, sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard, pepper and stir well!
Once the pasta is finished cooking according to directions than sir that in and allow to simmer at LOW temperature for about an hour and a half.
For the topping you just melt the butter in a sauce pan and add the breadcrumbs as well as herbs and salt.
Toss around and let toast over medium heat for 2 minutes.
Sprinkle on top and serve!
